Order books open for 2018 Ford Fiesta Active

The Fiesta-based crossover is now available to order in three variants, with prices starting from £17,790.

Order books are now open for the latest crossover to come from Ford — the Fiesta Active.

Starting at a price of £17,790, the jacked-up version of Britain’s best-selling car is available in three variants — Active 1, Active B&O Play and Active X — and will join the firm’s range alongside the Ka+ Active in “offering buyers an exciting lifestyle crossover”.

It retains the core look of the latest version of the Fiesta, but all Active models will receive a rugged body styling kit, an increased ride height, roof rails, front fog lights and 17-inch alloy wheels as standard.

Also included at no extra cost are lane-keep technology, automatic headlights, a heated windscreen and rear privacy glass. Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity features as well, which also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Adding more kit are B&O Play models, which get their name from 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio systems that feature. Alongside this, aesthetic tweaks such as a black roof with matching rails are included. There’s also yellow highlights throughout the cabin, along with additional tech such as cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, illuminated cup holders and a 4.2-inch TFT instrument cluster with traffic sign recognition. Pricing for B&O Play variants begins at £19,190.

The range-topping Active X brings partial leather upholstery, heated front seats, power-foldable door mirrors with puddle lights, a rear-view camera and parking sensors, as well as the addition of navigation and DAB radio to the SYNC 3 system. It’s available from £20,290.
